Dubai:

After a disastrous start to their campaign with two successive defeats, bottom-placed Sunrisers Hyderabad will be eager to bounce back against an inconsistent Delhi Daredevils, who are likely to be boosted by the return by Kevin Pietersen, in the seventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) here on Friday.

In their inaugural season, Hyderabad had reached the playoffs but their campaign this year started on a disappointing note as they first lost to Rajasthan Royals by four wickets and then were blown away by Glenn Maxwell during their 72-run crushing defeat to Kings XI Punjab. (Points Table)

Delhi, on the other hand, blew hot and cold as they began with a eight-wicket loss against Royal Challengers Bangalore, bounced back against Kolkata Knight Riders and an abject batting failure saw them suffer an embarrassing 93-run loss to Chennai in their last match.

Their campaign seemed to be affected by the absence of Kevin Pietersen, who has so far missed all the three matches, owing to an injury on his little finger, which he suffered during fielding drills with Surrey at the Oval last month. (Pietersen expects to play vs Hyderabad)
